Thank you for your support of CMHA’s Ride Don’t Hide event.
In 2017, Ride Don’t Hide raised $1.6M to support the resiliency and recovery of individuals experiencing mental illness. This could not have happened without the support of thousands of Canadians who participated from Newfoundland and Labrador to British Columbia. They cycled in plain sight to put an end to the stigma of mental illness. They rode to raise funds for mental health programs and services in their communities.
When we hide, mental health stays hidden. When we ride, we create change. This year, on June 24, ride in plain sight. Ride Don’t Hide. It’s more than the name of the event. It’s also the reason we’re riding. Be part of something bigger.
The CMHA-SOS serves the South Okanagan Similkameen region providing education program, health promotion, a clubhouse for individuals living with a mental illness, advocacy services, small amounts of funding for education, recreation and leisure activities. The association supports the recovery and resilience of individuals living with a mental illness and promotes good mental health. Visit the official Ride Don’t Hide Facebook page here.
All funds will be used locally to provide wellness programs, support the meals program for individuals living with mental illness, volunteer programs at the Penticton Clubhouse and Living life to the full which is a group program to assist individuals dealing with the stresses of everyday life. Our goal for 2017 is to raise $20,000.
